Intergrated systems biology of gas-fermenting acetogens

Dr Kaspar Valgepea works on the development of an integrated systems and synthetic biology platform to expand the product spectrum of gas-fermenting acetogens. The main focus of my research is the integration of systems biology tools (e.g. proteomics, metabolomics, genome-scale metabolic modelling) with steady-state gas fermentation experiments to study Clostdridium autotethanogenum for understanding and eventually overcoming the energetic limitations in acetogen metabolism.
